3rd Lawsuit Against Noah Galle And Parents Brings New Allegations
Noah Galle Accused Of Crashing His BMW M5, Killing In Delray Beach. Third Lawsuit Filed By A Victim’s Family.
WELLINGTON, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — The fallout from a January crash that killed 6 in Delray Beach continues to bring legal trouble to the Galle family as a 3rd victim has filed a civil suit against Noah Galle and his parents.
A new lawsuit was filed in Palm Beach County for the wrongful death of Marie Louis of Wellington who was one of the 6 victims killed when Noah Galle crashed his $100,000 into the car she was riding in at more than 150MPH last January.
The crash that killed 6, as Boca Post reported first, happened last January in rural Delray Beach on US-441.
The new lawsuit claims that Galle’s parents, Helena and Craig Galle, should have known that the $100,000 car, which was in Noah’s name, had a top speed of 190 mph,
unlike the standard trim with a 155 mph top speed. Noah was a minor and could not sign a legally enforceable contract for the BMW, thus Helena and Craig were involved in the transaction and then registered the car in Noah’s name.
The lawsuit also alleges that Noah’s parents knew or should have known that Noah had Instagram and Facebook pages because the Instagram page “M5.NOAH” was advertised in large print and clearly displayed on the side of the 2019 BMW M5 Competition trim in two places. The Instagram and Facebook profiles allegedly contained videos of Noah traveling at very high speeds and then offering $25 rewards to people who could guess the speed he was traveling in his competition sports car.
The lawsuit affirms that Helena and Craig entrusted their 17-year-old child with a dangerous instrument, a 2019 BMW M5 Competition trim, knowing his lack of age, lack of judgment, and lack of experience which became a source of danger to others on the road.
The lawsuit brings out some new allegations that Galle may have had an “unusual medical condition” that required him to be prescribed psychiatric medication. The civil suit references the criminal case saying that Galle’s criminal defense believes that his mental condition contributed to the crash.
The suit also claims that Noah’s parents knew or should have known it was unsafe to allow Noah to drive a 2019 BMW MS Competitiontrim because he had previously shown poor judgment when he received a ticket for placing a license plate on a car that was not registered to and then driving that car on public roads.
Even though investigators say that alcohol was not a factor in the crash, this new suit claims Noah’s parents knew or should have known it was unsafe to allow Noah to have access to alcohol knowing he was a minor, on psychiatric medications, and had an “unusual medical condition” and then allow him to drive the 2019 BMW M5 Competition trim.
The suit alleges Noah negligently operated his 2019 BMW M5 by failing to observe traffic conditions, excessive speed, failing to yield the right of way to upcoming traffic, failing to take evasive actions to avoid an accident, operating a motor vehicle while using a cell phone, failing to keep the vehicle under control and failing to use due care.
The suit claims vicarious liability and claims negligent supervision of Noah Galle on the part of Noah’s parents. The suit claims Noah’s parents have shown negligence as they should have known the following facts:
- Noah was a minor with a habit of driving in excess of the speed limit, including on the same road as the subject accident occurred.
- Noah was a minor with a habit of operating his motor vehicle in a unsafe and careless manner, including on the same road as the subject accident occurred.

- Noah was a minor and his parents were involved in the purchase of the 2019 BMW M5 Competition trim sports car knowing his long history of psychiatric care, psychiatric medication use, and his “unusual medical condition” which may have contributed to the accident.
- Noah was a minor who demonstrated a prior lack of judgment due to age and experience by placing a license tag on a car that did not belong to him and then driving it on public roads.
- Noah was a minor who demonstrated a prior lack of judgment due to age and experience by repeatedly driving in excess of the speed limit and then posting videos on Instagram and Facebook of driving in excess of the speed limit and offering to pay
anyone $25 who could properly guess the speed he was traveling.
